to -- i spoke to a pilot yesterday who lands here weekly at sfo on that exact runway and said that plane should have been at least # 50 to 100 feet higher at the point of impact. we do also expect to hear from first responders today. there have been all sorts of reports how many showed up. they had no warning either this was happening. passenger high school no warning. really this was going on only in the cockpit. the first responders came out to respond to a report of a hard landing. they had no idea it was actually a crash landing and the stories of throwing exacto knives to cut out some of the passengers from the seatbelts. we'll hear from more of them today. you may have heard this over the weekend that one of the fire trucks may have run over one of the two victims. that is still being talked about. they may address that today as well. so there are a number of things we should learn today. this investigation continues to go forward and sfo does say they are starting to get back to normal here, even though that runway does remain closed. back to you. >> steve: adam housley live at sa

that the 777 took into sfo on a parallel runway. what's going through your mind as you approach? >> right now i have to make sure my air speed is sufficient. making sure i don't go below my minimum approach speed. which i am currently way above that right now. so right now i look at the glide path, make sure it's a nice visual glide path and make sure i run past the runway and try to land on the marker. i want to reach my air speed now. constantly monitoring the outside visual, and making sure i'm not coming short or long. and 200 feet below where the seabed is. >> anything unusual about landing at this airport? >> you can see right over here, the runways are really close. they are paired probably around between 750 feet. if the other runway was in use, we would make sure to look constantly to our left to see the traffic next to us. also you have to make sure there is traffic holding wait to take off. as soon as we touch down, we have a 777 right here waiting to take off. just like it was on saturday morning. >> when you hit 400 feet, what goes through your mind? >> we're at about 400 feet. now

landing at sfo, particularly many can youing across water and over the sea wall. >> when you look at those combination of factors in this particular airport, what strikes you as you see the video? >> what strikes me as i see the video is that seven seconds before impact, they knew they were low and slow. they were going too slow, under the recommended guidelines for the speed of the plane, and they were way too low what's called the glide path. at that time, had they done something, they would have had a chance. when they tried to do evasive maneuvers or give themselves more time at 1.5 seconds, it was too late. there was no time. >> do you know if they had been on autopilot, it would have been easier? >> it would have because autopilot corrects those features, putting in, in layman's terms, your air speed, throttle, altitude. if they needed additional air speed or altitude while on autopilot, it would have corrected it kicked in the power they needed, it would have helped. >> what they called at the last second a fly around, would that have been possible at that point? is >> at that point
